Peter McKay Under Fire about Afghanistan

Peter McKay "I don't know that either sir."

The Harpoville Post reports that a Canadian Senate Committee put Foreign Affairs Minister Peter McKay under fire to answer questions about Canada's role in Afghanistan and Peter had only one answer; "I don't know."

The Harpoville Post has learned that Peter under fire is not a pretty sight. When a Senate Committee asked him how much money will the Afghanistan operation cost Canadian's, Peter stated no more than 1 Billion dollars total thru 2009, though the Defence Department states that 2 Billion has already been spent not including soldiers salaries and equipment depreciation costs. Peter McKay's aid later clarified what everyone else had guessed that 'Peter is not good with numbers.'

The Harpoville Post reports that when the committee asked Mr. McKay who's really in charge of the three governmental departments involved in the Afghanistan operation to which Peter answered, "I don't know." An aid to Mr. McKay later clarified, what most had suspected, that "Peter is not good with names."

The Harpoville Post reports that once under fire from the committee Peter responded with a strange aray of colorful metaphors like; "boots on the ground" and "last spike in the Canadian Railroad." With the last metaphor a Senator asked; "So, you're building a railroad across Afghanistan?" to which Mr. McKay responded, "I don't know, but, we could if you'd like one there." An aid to Mr. McKay later clarified what everyone in attendance already knew that, "Peter is not good with metaphors."
